The Big 12 announced two schedule adjustments on Thursday, including rescheduling the Iowa State-Kansas game.
That game, between the Cyclones and the Jayhawks, will now be played on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. central on Big 12 Now. That game, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 16, will be in Lawrence, Kansas.
The other game is one set for next week between TCU and Kansas, also in Lawrence. The Horned Frogs and the Jayhawks will now play on Thursday, Jan,. 28, at 7 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 26. Pushing the game back would give the Horned Frogs two additional days to navigate their COVID-19 issues.
On Monday, TCU head coach Jamie Dixon announced via Twitter that he has tested positive for COVID-19, just as the Horned Frogs announced that its next two games would be postponed — vs. Texas Tech on Jan. 20 and vs. Texas on Jan. 23. Those games have not been rescheduled.
TCU did not release information on any other players that had tested positive. Big 12 teams don’t normally released that information.
